- Course objectives
- The course provides an introduction into programing in Python language. The course is focused on its practical usage, especially demo applications in life sciences (problem solving, data processing). After finishing of the course, the students will be able to use basic syntactic constructions in Python (e.g., conditions, cycles, functions, basic data types). Furthermore, the students can create simple programs in Python and they can use Python as a tool for processing of data, obtained in their research and educative projects.
- Learning outcomes
- After finishing of the course, the student will be able to program in Python. Specifically, he/she will be able to process life science data with Python.
- Introduction - basic features of Python, cmparison with other programming languages, why and when to use Python. Introduction to Python development environment.
- Basic constructions of the language: basic data types, logic and mathematics operators, conditions, cycles. Inputs and outputs.
- Advanced data types - strings and collections (tuples, lists, dictionaries). Functions, lambda functions and recursion.
- Basics about complexity and algoritmization. Examples of basic algorithms. highest common divisor, prime numbers.
- Further examples of algorihtms: sorting algorithms, searching. Errors, exceptions and their processing.
- Work with files. Processing of binary files and text files.
- Introduction to OPP, objects. Moduls and packages.
- Work with text, introduction into regular expressions and processing of XML/JSON.
- Application of external modules in life sciences.
